on the side of obama. if you look at the geographical pattern of the vote. 44% in the detroit metro area, president obama had it in 2008. there is not much going on there for mitt romney. there is a three-point increase on the minority voters, seven-point decline among white, noncollege voters, eligible voters. these are huge changes and they go exactly against what is in the interest of the romney team. the romney team in wisconsin. maybe if they thought they would be able to take advantage what they believed to be this conservative white working-class voters by electing nominating paul ryan. they are making some progress, according to the poll, but some progress among white college graduates, but it's not anywhere close to what needs to take place. florida is a state, let's face it, if the romney campaign loses florida, chances of winning the 2012 election are close to zero. if we look at the pattern of support among the white working class, 17 points in 2008. we are not seeing any noticeably eager margin since 2008 among white working class voters. that is also being translated i

employee and a guest of our speaker. david shepherdson, washington bureau chief of the detroit news. thank you all for joining us today. for as long as most folks can remember, the unions have given their time, labor and money to democrats only caseally breaking with tradition and endorsing a republican for president as they did with ronald reagan and george h.w. bush. this year they will keep with tradition and support president obama's re-election campaign. teamster president james p. hoffa, our speaker today, says the labor union with 1.4 million members supports president obama and has criticized republicans and mitt romney for favoring ceos over workers. after the rnc convention in tampa, he told the huffington post that romney wallets to annihilate -- wants to annihilate organized labor, but it's been a mixed bag during the obama administration. attempts to raise the minimum wage have failed even when democrats dominated the house and the senate. some union supporters say the democratic national committee took labor support for granted when they chose north carolina, a right-t
